I have been dealing with DD1's eye for years but just recently was sent to a Pediatric Eye Center because our regular eye doctor said he could no longer help her and she needed more. Her esotropia is caused by weak muscles so we're facing surgery. They thought her weak muscles had caused anomalous correspondence and she had it bad. They couldn't do the surgery until the anomalous correspondence got better. If we went straight for surgery they said there would be a great chance she'd have permanent double vision.
Now they don't think she has the correspondence because her tests aren't conclusive. We have been patching her good eye two hours a day for the last couple weeks. Her vision is showing improvement in the bad eye so we are looking at going in for a surgical consult in about a month. They want to see her in 3 weeks to do another vision exam to see if her bad eye is continuing to get better.
I'm hoping she doesn't have the anomalous correspondence because if she turns out to have it that means about a yr of vision therapy before she'll be able to have the surgery done.
Anyone else have this problem with their child?
